Happy tyrannical birthday, Cuba!

NEW YEAR’S Day marks the 55th anniversary of Cuba’s communist revolution. It is the only full-blown dictatorship in the Western Hemisphere. As Human Rights Watch noted in April, no other country in Latin America is ruled by a regime that “represses virtually all forms of political dissent.” More than half a century after Fidel Castro seized power with the promise that “all rights and freedoms will be reinstituted” — and more than seven years since Raul Castro succeeded his brother as tyrant-in-chief — Cuba is consistently rated “Not Free” in Freedom House’s annual index of political and civil liberties worldwide…

There is only one dictatorship in the Americas. On New Year’s Day it turns another year older. Cry, the beloved island.

The Castros are thugs and Guevara was a psychopath. The good people of Cuba deserved better these past 55 years.
